Friday, May 24, 2013

The Knox County Sheriff’s Department, East Galesburg Police Department and Knox County State’s Attorney’s Office announce that several thousand dollars worth of greenhouse and horticulture equipment is being donated to the Knoxville School District.

The equipment was seized by the Knox County Sheriff’s Department and East Galesburg Police Department during a 2012 investigation into a cannabis growing operation in the Village of East Galesburg.

This is the second donation of similar equipment to the Knoxville School District.  The Sheriff’s Department tries to offer the equipment to the school district in which the seizure took place.
